Yeah; much as I like Jimmy, the series wouldn't be as good without Mike.

I don't really understand why they've filmed it like this. Aside from some very "in passing" scenes the two stories don't really cross over or have anything in common. Don't get me wrong I like both stories but they just seem odd in the same series. I'm good with it I suppose that there probably isn't enough material to make separate series.

Looking forward to watching tonight's installment on Netflix.

think we might be about to witness how Dinger got to be Dinger haha go on Mike smash him up!

This is the lives of these characters before Breaking Bad remember....they do converge eventually.

Mike and Saul work together a lot during Breaking Bad so it makes sense that both origin stories would be told here.

Yes it was. Very similar feeling to a lot of the breaking bad episodes.

That time of week. Another episode tonight to watch. Last one ended with things going tits up so this should be a good one.

Great episode. Chuck is a mean spirited twit.

It can only end badly.

I have just started watching this, about three episodes from the end of series 1.

It's bloody brilliant!

It's been a long time since I've let out an anguished "nooooooo!" at reaching the end of the disc and having to wait for the next one to arrive through the post :lol:

Looks like series 2 will be out soon (if it's not already), so hopefully I can go more or less straight into the next one.
